Make buying a ride fast and simple

Riding transit should be as easy as buying a cup of coffee: Regardless of what customers order or where the coffee shop is, they know they can instantly pay by tapping their contactless bank card or smart device.

But most California transit providers only accept regional fare cards or cash in exact change. These legacy fare systems are expensive to maintain and create barriers for new riders.

It’s time for California to tap into the future of fare payment. Nearly 75% of Californians have access to a contactless credit/debit card, and most have a smart device as well. Travelers will be more likely to choose transit if they can use what’s already in their pocket to pay for it—just like they pay for coffee.

Long-term benefits for transit providers

Lower overhead

Spend less money buying and servicing ticketing and change machines, and free up agents from selling fare cards by hand.

Faster boarding

Dwell times are cut in half when riders are able to tap to ride and transfer with a contactless bank card or smart device.

Higher ridership

Easier payments and seamless transfers improve satisfaction and grow ridership, particularly among new or occasional riders.
